Was there notification of removal? If so, what was the reason given?

I got a notification that my account was restricted for 3 days for sexual content

Was there the opportunity to appeal? If so, did you appeal and what was the response?

Yes, but I didn’t appeal.

What, if any, were the consequences of the removal for you? 

If I post the picture again, next time I will have my account blocked for 7 days


I share my artwork with my clients and audience who have been supporting me for many years, those who have seen me grow and also those I teach. This campaign is extremely important to me also, in terms of building my career and enabling me to sell my artwork to galleries.
